overhaul. it has never been used for health care reform. bret bair joins us now. we call it the nuclear option because, in essence, this is a civil war in the senate. clear battle lines have been drawn. the democrats on one side. the democrats on the other. that is the way it is. >> it is important to point out that republicans have used this numerous times before. for a massive package like health care reform that is more than 1/6 of the nation's economy, there are lots of people, both democrats and republicans who say they should not be used in this piece of legislation. we are still a number of steps away from that, if senate majority leader harry reid decides he wants to use reconciliation. you would have to get over a number of hurdles. it is not clear that the health- care bill can make it over those hurdles that have been set up in the legislative process. the top hurdle is the piece of legislation has to be paid for for five years and has to be a deficit neutral after that. as we have seen, that is not the case with what is on the table right now. trace: what about the political

. bosworth said bret it takes too long to get going and it is too small. it is not too flexible, especially at the local level. that is a bigger problem when people are willing to pay you to buy buses but not to pay bus drivers, you can be in a situation where people are laying off bus drivers and a half an offer to buy buses and what do you do with that? that is multiplied overall. i don't think this was the optimal way to provide stimulus and offset the recession of state and local fiscal actions that are cyclical. we to exactly the wrong thing when we are raising our taxes and cutting our spending in a recession. on the other hand, a lot of it is happening. the most significant impact may be long-term, which is outside the range of stimulus. some of the money that is in here, not even the larger amount, will have a positive effect. for instance, i should have mentioned, i am on the metro board and the washington area and we are getting too good million dollars in investment funds that we desperately need for capital. we had $500 million and we are getting $200 million. we are cutting our
